Development of mobile apps have always suffered from a problem of multiple code bases and platforms.
Or is it?!
Many have questioned this method regarding native look-and-feel, gesture recognition, smoothness, phone features, and more.
We are here to find out: are these real obstacles? Can they be overcome easily? What about hybrid solutions?
One thing we can say, if it's good enough for LinkedIn (http://venturebeat.com/2011/08/16/linkedin-node/), then we may consider it for us.
Prepare your questions and do your homework, because we are about to face the professionals who are already building such apps.
Demonstrating apps that they've built, and talking about the challenges, will be:
1) Shai Rubinshtein
- Short presentation on mobile app development using Phonegap and Sencha Touch
- "Auto" magazine mobile app
2) Roman Svichar
- An app for stock exchange trading
- An automatic web platform for building mobile apps
3) Guy Lewin
- Wizsupport chat application for support agents
You can park in the street.
If you can't find parking, try the parking lot in Menachem Begin, coming south from HaShalom right after Hashmonaim, on the right.
Then, cross the bridge over Menahem Begin and you're there.
